I setup gixen to bid $162.79 but I lost the auction with gixen reporting "bid under asking price". The winning bid was $147.77? The minimum bid increment for this price range is $2.50 as reported by eBay. The bid was not mirrored and my bid does not appear in the bidding history. Why did this not work when my bid was over the minimum bid? This is in relation to Item number: 291859720543

Thanks for your help.

Mick,

My apology for this. I found that one recent change by ebay broke the parsing and resulted in a page being mis-recognized as "low bid". I fixed this now.

I hope you can find a similar item again.

Thanks Mario. I really appreciate the reply and I'll get over missing out on this one. I use gixen a bit and think it's great, this is the first time I've had an issue and I'm glad my feedback helped you improve your site with a fix. All the best mate.

Joruus20,

Have you placed a bid manually, or used another sniping service in addition to Gixen? Gixen will recognize listing as won only if it wins it itself.

Hi, no I did not place the bid manually, only through Gixen and I only use Gixen. I was going to report the same issue as Skronkman did until I saw his thread.

This has happened to me twice over the last 3 weeks but the current item i won actually stated I WON the item# 172337679778.

So it looks like it is working now.

Thanks,
Joruus20

Joruus20,

What did you have set as your target site on the 'Settings' page when you set up this snipe?

Knowing that might help to track down whether, or not, a problem still exists with this.

I have United States as my target site for Main and Mirror.

Also have Change ebay target site automatically if needed: set to Yes.

Hope that helps.
